Tino’s Carne Asada Marinade

November 15, 2020


2 lbs of Carne para asar (Pick your favorite cut like chuck, ball tip, skirt steak, etc.)

1 whole white onion

1 bundle of cilantro

5 juicy limes

1 Bottle of olive oil

1 container of Chef Merito Carne Asada Seasoning

2-4 Lager Beers (I prefer Dos XX lager beer)


Take your whole white onion and cut it Julienne style, place in a bowl.

Take your bundle of cilantro and cut it coarsely, then place in a bowl

Cut your limes in half and place in a bowl.

Add a layer of onion and cilantro to the bottom a mixing bowl.

Cover your meat with olive oil on both sides. Then liberally coat it with the Chef Merito Carne Asada Seasoning.

Place the meat in a mixing bowl, add enough for one layer. Add another layer of Onion and Cilantro.

Repeat this layering process until you have used all the meat.

Then pour enough beer just to cover the meat.

Let everything marinate anywhere from 2 hours to 2 days.  The longer you let it everything marinade the more tender the meat will become.

Refrigerate when you are finished and once marinated it is ready to cook!
